Penguin Playmates Gift Card Holder

Penguin and friends adorn this gift card holder

Whenever I need a gift card holder, this is my go-to design. It’s quick, fits a gift card perfectly, and can be decorated any which way you like. And bonus, you can get 3 out of one sheet of 8 1/2″ x 11″ cardstock. I used the Penguin Place bundle with the coordinating Penguin Playmate DSP (available free with a $50 purchase through the end of September).

To make this gift card holder, you’ll need:

  • Just Jade cardstock: 3 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored along the long side at 2″ and 6″
  • Balmy Blue cardstock (belly band): 1″ x 8 1/2″
  • Penguin Playmate DSP: 3 1/4″ x 2 1/4″ and 3 1/4″ x 1 3/4″
  • Scraps of Basic Black, Basic White, and Calypso Coral
  • Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black, Calypso Coral Ink Pad, and Misty Moonlight Ink Pad
  • White Glittered Organdy Ribbon
  • Your basic tool kit (snips, bone folder, trimmer, Dimensionals, Tear & Tape, Stampin’ Seal)
  • Detailed Trio Punch
  • ……..And the Penguin Place bundle

To assemble, follow these steps:

  • Burnish the score marks using bone folder and adhere the larger flap to the middle section using Tear & Tape
  • Round the corner of the Just Jade (smaller flap) and smaller DSP piece (just on side that will face down)
  • Adhere the DSP using Stampin’ Seal – the larger piece on the bottom flap and the smaller piece on the outside of the smaller flap
  • Wrap the Balmy Blue strip around the closed gift card holder and secure tabs together using Tear & Tape (make sure not to make to tight)
  • Assemble a penguin by using the Penguin punch and scraps of Basic Black, Basic White, and Calypso Coral cardstock
  • Stamp sentiment on a scrap of Basic White and notch end out
  • Adhere two small pieces of of White Glittered Organdy ribbon to the belly band using Stampin’ Seal and the sentiment piece above that.
  • Adhere the penguin on the belly band using Stampin’ Dimensionals

I think the hardest part of this design is deciding how to decorate it – right?
